Pre-Finance and Pre-Real Estate majors may enroll in lower division (below 100/3000-level) business courses only. Enrollment in upper division (3000/4000-level) business courses equires satisfactory completion of the CBA admission requirements and any course prerequisites.

Finance and Real Estate majors may declare a double major, and/or major and minor within the College of Business Administration, subject to the approval of the other CBA departments involved. Finance and Real Estate majors minoring within the CBA must select minors designated for business majors. Finance majors cannot minor in Finance, and Real Estate majors cannot minor in Real Estate. However, Finance majors may double major or minor in Real Estate, and Real Estate majors may double major in Finance or minor in Finance. Also, not more than one emphasis area may be declared in Finance.
